It was a surprise loss for the Green Bay Packers as they were outscored by the Buccaneers with a final tally of 10-38. On Sunday, October 18, 2020, they began well by scoring a ten point lead in the first quarter at the Raymond James Stadium at Tampa Bay. After this initial triumph, the Packers made a series of mistakes. They played as a bunch and didn’t spread out wide enough to score. Their star quarterback Aaron Rodgers made mistakes, including throwing a pick-six, which clinched their loss.
Although the Buccaneers didn’t make any spectacular plays, they took full advantage of the mistakes made by the Packers. They converted each mistake to a victory. They scored 14-10 by halftime and took an even larger lead in the first few moments of the third quarter. Head Coach of the Green Bay Packers, Matt LaFleur said, “Got outcoached, got outplayed. Gotta give the Bucs all the credit in the world. They had a good game plan and really took is to us.”
Despite an unspectacular play by Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, his team managed to win their match as the Green Bay Packers lacked rhythm and coordination and the Buccaneers converted these shortcomings to triumphs and won the game. They dominated the second quarter and posted a huge win. This match highlighted the errors of the Packers rather than a spectacular performance by the Buccaneers. The Buccaneers became the team that gave the Packers their first loss so far, in this season.
